Hungarian Archery Club
The HC&HS Archery Club was established on the 23rd of July 2011 within the framework of the Hungarian Culture & Heritage Society. The aim of the archery club is to represent and promote the traditions of archery to the UK public and to Hungarians living in the UK. Archery is one of the oldest sports in the world, in fact the history of Hungarian Archery can be traced back 1,500 years. The culture of archery is unique in Europe. More and more attention is paid to it as a sport in a modern life in Hungary.
Our goal is to increase awareness of archery as a sport and introduce it to the local community. Therefore, we have established the HC&HS archery club which provides the opportunity for all ages to take advantage of archery as a recreational sport, which can be excercised regularly by joining our club. HC&HS has already organized two Archery Days, both having been a great success within the community and participants. The program provided a full-day adrenalin raising experience for all participants who also had the opportunity to join our archery competition with real interesting prizes. Our target for the next 12 monhts is to hold regular excercises at least twice a month.
Club members have the opportunity to excercise archery with traditional Hungarian bows provided by us, alternatively participants can also bring their own equipment. Club membership is free for children under the age of 10. Children aged 10 and above along with adulds, are required to pay a £5 monthly membership.
Our club currently has 12 club members.
The club board members :
- János Tóth
- István Olivér Fátyol
- Tamás Papp
We welcome everyone who would like to become a member of our club and excercise the ancient or modern archery! Would you like to become a member? Would you like to get regular updates about our future programs? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
